Jewish Cultural Festival
Lyndhurst, 635 S. Broadway
Tarrytown, New York

The Jewish Community Center on the Hudson will present the third annual Jewish Cultural Festival, a celebration of Jewish arts, history and rich contribution to American culture. To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII, the Festival will feature a dramatic reading of Dear Mom and Dad.

First performed at the Museum of American Jewish Military History, Dear Mom and Dad honors the life and service of Herb Rosencrans, the first born American son of Jewish immigrants.  Dear Mom and Dad centers around  the bond between two mothers whose sons served during WWII, two sons who served their country.  Only one will come home.  Eva Rosencrans and Marjorie Wylie represent the mothers who prayed every day for the end of the War.
